Gibbons P.C. Reviews

- Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Advice to law firm management: The law office does a great job of hiring intelligent and encouraging workers. However, the firm falls short in rewarding their employees with an equal salary to the work performed.

Pros: The law firm is composed of a group of staff and employees which are intelligent. The staff and employees have created and environment in which there is a sense of encouragement.

Cons: The law firm has a model that causes competition amongst employees. The amount of work performed by staff and employees is rewarded with low salary.

Advice to law firm management: It would be nice to have annual reviews and raises based on those reviews instead of the current haphazard way of moving up.

Pros: The firm is very diverse and has a good mix of people working here. It's not a stuffy place to work and they start you out with pretty good benefits and salary. It's a midsize firm so there is a good balance between work life and home life because it's not a pressured environment.

Cons: The raises and reviews are few and far between even though they start you off at a good figure. It takes quite a long time to move up and make more money.

With 220 attorneys, Gibbons is a leading law firm in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, ranked among the nation’s top 200 by The American Lawyer. Gibbons has been recognized nationally for its work – as, for example, one of only 20 law firms, and the only one headquartered in New Jersey, on the National Law Journal’s inaugural “Midsize Hot List” – as well as regionally. In 2014, the New Jersey Law Journal named Gibbons the “General Litigation Practice of the Year,” highlighting the firm’s multidisciplinary litigation strength, while Law360 selected Gibbons as a “Regional Powerhouse,” based on a number of high-profile corporate transactions in the public and private sectors, as well as major litigations throughout the region. The Mid-Atlantic Middle Market The firm also stands out among competitors by staying true to a middle-market vision. Our business model is focused on offering high quality, cost-effective middle-market legal services to Fortune 500 clients and middle market businesses; that is, we handle major matters for mid-market companies (with annual revenues of $100 million to $2.5 billion) and mid-market matters for major companies, notably in the Mid-Atlantic region. With headquarters in Newark, New Jersey, and thriving offices in New York, Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Trenton, Gibbons has a significant foothold in the Mid-Atlantic and a presence that lends itself to exceptional regional coverage, especially for clients with their own regional business strategies. With cutting edge video, audio, and network technology linking all five of our offices, we are able to close major deals and devise litigation strategies for matters that involve Gibbons attorneys across several firm offices and client representatives throughout a number of their own locations—as if we were all in the same room.

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
